Which houseplants are poisonous for cats?

I have a cat, and he started to chew on all plants in the house. I am afraid, that some of them could be dangerous for him. Which plants are not recommended to have at home if you have animals? Thank you!

    Many plants of the lily family are toxic to cats, the asparagus fern, corn plant (also known as cornstalk plant, dracaena, dragon tree or ribbon plant),
    dieffenbachia (commonly known as dumb cane, tropic snow or exotica), elephant ear (also known as caladium, taro, pai, ape, cape, via, via sori or malanga),
    cyclamen (also known as sowbread),
    heartleaf philodendron (also known as horsehead philodendron, cordatum, fiddle leaf, panda plant, split-leaf philodendron, fruit salad plant, red emerald, red princess or saddle leaf),
    jade plant (also known as baby jade, dwarf rubber plant, jade tree, Chinese rubber plant, Japanese rubber plant or friendship tree),
    aloe plant (also known as medicine plant or Barbados aloe), satin pothos (also known as silk pothos).
    These indoor plants are poisonous for cats and dogs. Well, there are so many other dangerous houseplants for our pets that I prefer not to have them because of my cat!
